The Chicago Sun-Times is far too polite to and about the doddering racist, though:
Farrakhan gave several reasons why the U.S. lacks the moral authority to intervene in the Libyan conflict, including the deaths of black people at the hands of law enforcement during the Rodney King protests in 1991 and the unhealthy food that the federal government allows into the marketplace.
…if for no other reason than the fact that ‘the Rodney King protests’ should be more accurately described as ‘the LA Riot.’ If you’re wondering about how people died there, Jim Crogan did a ten-year retrospective*; suffice it to say that Farrakhan is being considerably… ‘nuanced’ is nicer, but ‘mendacious’ is more accurate. Either way, every so often you have to remind people that, yes, people like Farrakhan are out there and apparently welcome to speak at Left-events without fear of embarrassment for anybody. But, hey! Let the Obama administration worry about it now!
PS: And, oh yes, Obama is our first Jewish President and was picked by shadowy Jewish leaders. (sigh) The tertiary phase of conspiracy theorizing is never pretty.
*And if you’re wondering what happened to those two guys most well-known for rushing in and saving people from mob violence (thus making them much, much better people than Farrakhan)… well, Rev. Benny Newton tragically passed away a couple of years later, but Bobby Green got the hell out of LA.
